Not a true upgrade over the far less expensive 5020L

Silverback, Amazon
16 September 2014
  • Summary: More hassle and more expensive than the 5020L. Having previously purchased the 5020L, I needed an additional camera and thought I would "upgrade" to this camera.. I found the performance lacking: HD will only be evident on a quality computer monitor: if you're going to view from a phone you won't have an HD option. Additionally, I found that that this camera often dropped frames, not an issue with the 5020.

Doesn't work with ASUS RT86U routers

Anon, B&H Photo
12 July 2014
  • Excerpt: The camera and software is satisfactory, not stellar, but it does work. Unless, unfortunately, you're using an ASIS RT86U router and connecting via ethernet cable. The camera is unable to obtain an IP address however, if I try it with a different router, it does work. I was trying to install it onto a network that's running several older, DCS 5020L cameras without issue so there's something with the DCS 5222L's firmware that cases an issue.
  • Pros: Accurate
  • Cons: Difficult Setup

The technology for these types of cameras is not ready for consumers

Ben, Amazon
1 April 2014
  • Summary: After spending several hours updating the firmware on this device, I finally got it connected to the d-link cloud. Furthermore, the applications and lag to control these devices are several YEARS behind in technology and the result is a glitchy lagging picture and performance for camera rotation.

Too Many Bugs

DGHokee, Amazon
20 February 2014
  • Summary: I ordered this camera but after spending several hours trying to get the cameras to consistently connect to my home wireless network, I returned it for a refund. Over the course of 3-4 days I spent 2-3 hours on the phone with DLink technical support and they were unable to resolve the problems.

Cumbersome to set up

Anthony O., Amazon
6 February 2014
  • Summary: Well..I am a fan of D Link cameras. This is my 7th D Link but first DCS-5222L model. I figured that I would try it out and see how it compares to the other ones. So far I do not like it. Reason I have not been able to get it to work with either of my routers. One is an older Linksys B/G router and the other is a newer TP-Link router. I was able to get it to communicate with my laptop but only though my D Link router and setting up via WPS. No other method would work.

Ok hardware, terrible software

Archana A Potnis, Amazon
25 January 2014
  • Summary: The camera hardware is just ok. 1280x720p does not look crisp as you might expect (even in good light). It turns, tilts, pans just fine. There's a bit lag and you can't hold the turn/tilt button for continuous turning. Setting up the camera was straight forward. Now the software: It sucks! The MyDlink Lite app is usable but offers far less capabilities than your smart-phone video app. You can't start/stop recording through the smart-phone app. What a disappointment.

Good Camera, horrible software&support

Bigguy, B&H Photo
26 December 2013
  • Excerpt: The camera works well on my local net. Optical and picture quality is very good. The tech support to use it remotely over the internet was horrible, and I could not get the "my d-link" software to even connect to the camera.
  • Pros: High Quality Camera
  • Cons: Horrible Tech Support, Non Functioning Software

Needs work

Ricky H., Amazon
26 September 2013
  • Summary: I am writing this mainly to warn potential buyers of the issues that I have encountered after several weeks of use. Here are some details about my setup. I am running a Netgear 6300 wireless router and minus the update I needed for the camera, setup was a matter of linking the two wirelessly. Once you register directly on Dlink's website, you were able to access the camera via online. I later downloaded the app on my iphone 5 and found several issues.
